On this tour we will visit one of the most important sites to visit in Israel- Masada! The last stronghold of the Jewish revolt against Rome and its legions before the long exile. We will understand the reasons for the great revolt, the history and the archeology of Masada- the strongest desert fortress built by King Heros, and the desperate battle of the 900 Jews against the 10th Legion. Prepare yourself for a different ending to the story you all know.
